If in this life only we have hope in Christ, then we are of all men most miserable. Adam gave his life for the flesh. Jesus gave his for the Spirit. Then Jesus came back from the grave, gave instruction to his disciples, opened the seals from the hand of God and started the war against the kingdom of Satan.
People say Jesus has a church, but he has a kingdom. He is a King. The word kingdom was changed to church to make Christ seem smaller. That is one of Satan's tactics.
On the day of Pentecost one of the greatest things to transpire on earth happened. The Holy Ghost fell upon about 120 of Jesus' apostles and disciples. They all spoke with other tongues, and prophesied. If you think this is easy, try to learn another language.
This is what the Holy Father had promised through Jesus. In the last days saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh. This is the promise of God. This is the Gift of God. THE HOLY GHOST. He never promised to send us Noah's ark, the Holy grail, Jesus' robe, a book about Jesus, his sandals, or anything else. He never promised to send us something natural.
His promise to us is THE HOLY GHOST. The Gift of God. This promise is to you and your children and to them that are afar off. To repent is to give up your life after the flesh. Baptism is to be buried with Jesus. It's your funeral day. Rise to walk in newness of life. Be led by the Spirit of the living God.
This is the new covenant. I will put my laws in their hearts and in their minds will I write them. You are the temple of the living God. As God had said, I will dwell in them and walk in them, and I will be their God and they shall be my people. And I will be a father unto you, and you shall be my sons and my daughters saith the Lord God Almighty. I will pour out my Spirit. The Spirit of promise and gift of God.
After this event happened on the day of Pentecost, the sons of God began to be led and controlled by the HOLY GHOST.
THE BOOK OF ACTS: Then the Spirit said unto Philip, "Go near and join thyself to this chariot."
In a vision to Ananias the Lord said, "Go to the street called straight and pray for Saul."
And the Spirit said unto Peter, "Go to Cornelius' house."
The Holy Ghost said, "Separate me, Barnabas and Paul for the work whereunto I have called them."
Satan has a problem, men and women are being led by the Spirit of God. Comforted by the spirit. The Holy Ghost making intercession for them. They needed no man to teach them. The Holy Ghost in them taught them.
What was Satan going to do. In Job's time all Satan had to do was attack the flesh. Satan had told the Father, "skin for skin, yea all that a man has will he give for his life."
Now Satan has to overcome the Holy Spirit in man. He had lost his control over mankind. Man was being controlled by the Spirit of God. He would kill them with the sword, stone them to death, put them in prison, nail them to the cross and still they could not be stopped. They wouldn't bend, they wouldn't bow, and they wouldn't burn. They would sing on their way to the lions den. They were now Sons of God. Born of Jesus the seed of God. To whom Satan offered the whole world if he would worship him. But Jesus said, "Get behind me Satan, I will worship the God of heaven and him only will I serve."
Satan had to dig down deep. He could not overcome the Holy Ghost. The only thing on earth that Satan cannot control is the Holy Spirit of God.
Now Satan has to emulate. To try to equal or surpass, to imitate.
The law was weak through the flesh. But now he is up against the Spirit of God. Now he has to deceive.
